Polestar 3 price, release date, range, and pictures of the American-built electric SUV

Polestar is one of my favorite electric car makers. It’s kind of a spinoff from Volvo, sharing a corporate parent and taking the Swedish firm’s lead designer as its CEO, as well as Volvo’s overall design ethos. Two vehicles have been released so far, Polestar 1 and Polestar 2, both of which I really liked when I drove them.

Next up is the Polestar 3, an “aerodynamic electric performance SUV” that could be one of the most exciting electric vehicles to come out in a year chock full of exciting EVs. One of the more interesting things about the 3 is that it will be manufactured at Volvo’s existing assembly facility in Ridgeville, South Carolina.

“Production in the USA reduces delivery times as well as the environmental impact associated with shipping vehicles around the world. It will even have a positive impact on the price of Polestar 3,” said Polestar COO Dennis Nobelius in a press release. “All of this makes the brand even more competitive in the critical American sales market.”

The Polestar 3 is shaping up to be one of the most exciting cars of 2022. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Polestar 3, from release date, price, and specs to range and charging time.

This story is developing and will be updated as more information becomes available.
